Tormarton is mentioned in the Domesday Book as paying 8 hides in taxation. The brass on the floor of the church nave is of a man in civilian clothes with a "penner and inkhorn". "Tor" is tower and "marton" is mearck meaning boundary, the boundary between Mercia and Wessex. The cottage of the north west side of the churchyard was once part of a college of priests. The large house across the road, opposite the church, is Tormarton Court, at one time a rectory.
Constructed of Cotswold Stone, Chestnut Farm is surrounded by gardens and fields. The property was built in 1828 by the 9th Duke of Beaufort and is situated on the edge of the village. The farm has been run as a guesthouse since 1994. All the rooms are en-suite with twin or double beds.
